Well I am a new rider and I practice blipping the throttle whenever I downshift. I notice that is helps get rid of some of the engine braking and I'm smoother. I can only imagine it would do the same on a big V twin. (Also I love the way it sounds.)

Yeah, I blip on downshifts too... but I do see some guys just flat revving. I'll admit, when you pull in the clutch on the Buell and RPMs drop suddenly, it DOES feel like it'll die before it finally smooths out at idle.

Man, y'all are just haters. Starbucks is the only logical place for real bikers to meet up, because it's so close to 610. Where else would they ride?

There's a difference between Blipping on Downshift, and pulling in the clutch and Reving the engine up a couple thousand for the of it..
